we did not identify any audit adjustments. and so if we had, that would have led us to evaluating internal controls for that to be presented and we would have misstatement for that, too. we do look at the agency's significant accounting polices. there were some that were new for this year that are required for all governmental agencis this year. and they primarily dealt with presentation and none that changed the method for how accounting was determined. so when you look at the financials, we do a risk-based approach, where we look at where are the significant accounting estimates and numbers that make up your financial statements? and probably the most significant one for you is the management's estimate of the accrued workers comp and accrued general liability with regard to any lawsuits or claims that might
be out there. we looked at the -- with regard to those two items we did look at the analysiss that was prepared by your expert. we had our experts review it as well, to ensure that we felt comfortable with the amount that had been recorded in your financials and as again mentioned no adjustments. i think the other is that we have to go through and have the responsibility to let you know, if i had any difficulties that i encountered while performing the audit, whether management had complied with providing us with the documentation, books and records and things of that sort; that we needed. we had no difficulty performing the audit and there were no issues where we went through and -- we always have healthy discussions over the proper way to do accounting, but we didn't
have anything -- like kpmg, if don't agree with us, you are fired. [ laughter ] imnothing of that nature. if there was i would have a requirement to let you know, the only material written communications we have a contract with the city to engage us and at the conclusion of the audit, management presents a representation letter that says we provided you the books and records and told you about any contracts significant to the financial statements and made this available to us and have told us about any non-compliance with laws, rules and regulations, et cetera. with that, that is my report. as we said, we conducted a successful, clean audit. and any questions that you may have on our process, findings, et cetera? >> thank you very much, miss
